To assess your total eye health during an eye exam, eye drops are administered to dilate your pupils so the ophthalmologist is able to have a better view of the back of your eye. The widening of your pupils causes several hours of blurry vision and sensitivity to light. Sunglasses not only soothe this sensitivity but are needed to protect your eyes while they are dilated. A thorough eye exam aids in detecting diseases earlier often before symptoms are noticed. Early treatment may help protect your vision. Contact Eye Michigan for an appointment to ensure your eye health.
